If it’s date night you’re after, the River Campus has you covered this weekend.
This Friday is yet another First Friday of the Arts. What does that mean? It means receptions, artist talks and exhibitions—all for free! The River Campus Art Gallery will be opening Two Brothers: Points of Origin, paintings by brothers Jason and Stanley Bly. The Artist Talk starts at 4:30 with the reception beginning at 5 p.m.
Over in the Crisp Museum, you can take in a music concert honoring the exhibition currently on display, Reconstructed. That exhibit looks at the history of the banjo and African string instruments and the concert will feature music inspired by African culture, particularly the banjo. And do you know what? Also, free admission!
Also on tap for Friday night is Tango Buenos Aires. A company of 25 will entertain with a program of the world’s most romantic dance. Tickets on sale for Tango now, and as a bonus with your ticket you can get a free Tango lesson before the show plus a sneak peak of the upcoming Fall for Dance.
And if all that’s not enough, Sunday you can take in a voice recital and next Tuesday is the Gala Season Opener of the Southeast Missouri Symphony Orchestra. Award-winning pianist Antonio Pompa-Baldi joins the symphony in works by Mozart, Dvorak, and Beethoven.
It’s a big week at the River Campus! Tickets and more details at RiverCampus.org and I hope to see you soon at the Box Office!
